I Am a Night Owl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65,418 People

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    It's like the later I stay up,

    the less tired I feel sometimes.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    All of my creative juices brew in the night.

    I amaze myself with the ideas I come up with at this hour. I don't know if I should be excited or terrified of what might come out of this o.O

    I usually stay awake

    until about 3:00 in the morning. I spend most of my time at night reading, writing, and watching documentaries. I will occasionally take a walk outside if the weather is permitting. I enjoy seeing the stars and watching airplanes landing at and departing from the nearby airport...

    I hate having to be diurnal,

    I much prefer night time, less people around, it's nice a cool outside when the day has been hot, it's quieter and I can avoid crowds. Just a shame that nothing is open and life stands in the way of being nocturnal.

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    When I'm at school, my brain is dead.

    But when the night comes around, I suddenly transform into a genius. How can this happen???

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    I have this really messed up sleeping cycle.

    I have tried so many things. And I just can't fall asleep, my usual time to stay up, even on school days, is 2-4am. I have tried reading, melatonin, meditation, thinking, and just plain sitting in the dark. If anyone has any other ideas, please tell me
